I realize this response is nearly 12yrs later, but I've just acquired a blank Family Bible dated to the 1880's. It has two unusual features, both being a Bible Dictionary and a History of Each Bible Book, both being written by Rev. John D. Williams. I've been trying to find out who Rev. Williams was, and why someone would have ordered a Family Bible with his Dictionary rather than the more popular Smith Bible Dictionary of that era. Could this be the same Rev. John D. Williams you speak of? If so, would you please email whatever information you have on Rev. Williams? Thanks.
